Feedback

I sip my Dorset tea and just wanted to say thanks so much for the invitation to the lit fest - I thoroughly enjoyed it...

Rob Ryan
Feedback From 2015 Festival

Thank you very much for such a warm welcome and lovely (huge...) audience...Emma made the whole event such an easy pleasure for me.

Joanna Trollope
Feedback From 2018 Festival

Thanks very much... It was fun and the audience very responsive.

Adam Nicolson
Feedback From 2017 Festival

I was particularly delighted by how many of the audience seemed to know and appreciate my work. As you know, authors are solitary creatures - mostly - and for me at least it's a real pleasure to have good reason to leave my work-room (a shed in the garden with a too-seductive view of the Cambrians) and meet and talk with readers and fellow writers (not forgetting that many of us are both).

Feedback From 2016 Festival

Many thanks, and thanks again for a lovely event.

Catherine Mayer
Feedback From 2015 Festival

Very well organised, excellent variety in terms of author and presentation. Favourite was Tony Robinson, but I also really enjoyed Julia Shaw (memory very thought provoking), Richard Dannatt (good solid start to festival) JOHN Wright (local and good humour) Alison Weir (such research and knowledge) and Victoria Hislop (novel in a different style).
